We’re looking for monologues that are between 3 -5 minutes long and are spoken by a character who is in isolation due to the Covid-19 crisis.

Our reader’s panel will then select three monologues and each monologue will be performed and filmed by actors in isolation.

The filmed monologues will be shared via social media and available to watch on Kali’s YouTube channel as part of the Kali SOLOS series.

  • Selected writers will receive £250 each
  • Monologues must respond to the current crisis and must be able to be filmed by actors in isolation
  • Writers must only submit one monologue

How to Enter:
